Example: Information Collected from this web site for Statistical Purposes

Below is an example of the information collected based on a standard request for a World Wide Web document:

www.xxx.yyy.com - - [01/Jan/2000:12:00:00 -0800] "GET /default.asp HTTPS/1.1" 200 12345 "https://www.atrrs.army.mil/" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98)"

www.xxx.yyy.com (or 111.222.333.444) -- this is the host name (or IP address) associated with the requester (you as the visitor). In this example, (....com) the requester is coming from a commercial address. Depending on the requester's method of network connection, the host name (or IP address) may or may not identify a specific computer. Connections via many Internet Service Providers assign different IP addresses for each session, so the host name identifies only the ISP. The host name (or IP address) will identify a specific computer if that computer has a fixed IP address.

[01/Jan/2000:12:00:00 -0800]] -- this is the date and time of the request

"GET /default.asp HTTPS/1.1" -- this is the location of the requested file on https://www.atrrs.army.mil

200 -- this is the status code - 200 is OK - the request was filled

12345 -- this is the size of the requested file in bytes

"https://www.atrrs.army.mil" -- this is the referrer

"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MS IE 5.01;Windows 98)" -- this is the user-agent -or- web browser

Requests for other types of documents use similar information. No other user-identifying information is collected.
